A contractor for the city of Tampa will start picking up storm debris Thursday and will continue through Oct. 27.

TAMPA — City Hall has activated a private contractor, Ceres Environmental, to begin picking up and hauling away debris from Hurricane Irma starting Thursday.

Storm debris collection will continue 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. seven days a week through Oct. 27. Residents should place debris at the curb and:

• Separate debris into the following categories: vegetative (un-bagged), construction and demolition, appliances and white goods, such as refrigerators or washers and electronics.

• Make sure debris is clear of any electrical lines, water meters, storm drains, drainage ditches, mail boxes and fire hydrants.

• Remember that crews cannot enter private property without an approved right of entry agreement.

The city is accepting storm debris at the McKay Bay Disposal Facility, but encourages residents to wait for the storm debris collection service to avoid a long wait time.

Regular garbage, recycling and yard waste services will continue to be provided by the city in addition to the storm related collection service. For questions, contact the city at (813) 274-8811 or tampagov.net/solidwaste.
